Riz Ahmed Interview for Time

Had to keep this one secret for a while, but in February I had the pleasure of shooting an interview with Riz Ahmed for the TIME 100 Most Influential list. As you can see below, he is an incredibly charming and thoughtful individual. Huge congrats to everyone who made the list (seeing Samantha Bee on there was especially exciting)..


As we enter the first few weeks of the new year, I wanted to share a new film that I've been busy with for the past couple of months. I shot this short on the evening of the US election at The Lexington pub in London, and today it premiered at Short of the Week, and was selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick. It was also published at The Atlantic as an Editors' Pick.

From the review: "Election Night avoids agit-prop, and by doing so, it stands as one of the most objective takes on that election night that I’ve seen so far." You can watch the entire film below.
